View Full Version : Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit ?
22 Feb 11, 07:22
Longtime lurker here, been enjoying HPS early American battles for years now on my old XP rig in the den but its on its last leg and its time to move on.
I'm looking to replace the desktop with win 7 64 bit laptop but am hesitant till I find my HPS titles will run ?
Any feedback would be a great help ........:smoke:
They should still run without issue, as long as you take a couple of steps when you set things up:
1) Avoid the default installation directory. Instead go to something like C:\Games\1776
2) Apply the latest updates off the HPS site.
I run Win 7 32-bit without issue and at least one person on the development side is running the 64-bit version.

Appreciate the reply and the advisory on install.
I run Window 7 64 bit and all my HPS games work just fine. I installed all like I did my French and Indian War ( c:\FIW), and they work properly, and much quicker than on my old machine, plus the 3d zoom in view looks pretty good now. ;-) al

Thanks again guys,
Installed and runs with out any headaches .
plus the 3d zoom in view looks pretty good now.
Indeed, I usually play as everyone in 2d and upon sweeping my old PC HD before the final shutdown I came across some of my old 2D mods... Bonus !

Once I get the hang of this windows7 I'll take you up on the offer....8)
The install with the advice above went well and I'm up 'n running , acually its more like muzzleloading the game in but uneventful.

I’m still tinkering, 2D is finally just about finished and I have started on the 3D graphics….
